Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
He is Risen indeed, Alleluia!
Quite a story, starting with the triumphal ride into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday on the humble donkey. Crowded streets, the place packed with people preparing for the feast of the Passover, Jesus turning over the tables in the temple, the Last Supper in the upstairs room, for fear of being found, the long night in the Garden of Gethsemane, the betrayal of Jesus by Judas, the capture by the soldiers, Jesus coming before Pontius Pilate, the crowds calling for him to be crucified and the release of Barabbas.
And then the crucifixion.
Saturday, the holy day for the Jews.
And so to today, the good news that Jesus is risen. Alleluia!
This is the good news, the news we all share even today 2000 years after the event and it hasn’t changed, He is risen indeed Alleluia!
